Glad they won. But rebounding is killing us. Jordan has to sit. He’s doing nothing.

Superstars came thru and won that one for us... that’s why they’re paid the big bucks but accomplished Superstar status... well done to KD and Kyrie!

Did you guys notice how much different KD's post game interview was with Grady compared to the TNT post game? Very talkative and gave good insight. Love it, **** TNT and ESPN.

Kyrie/Joe/TLC/KD/Allen finished the game.

That goes to show you who the coaching staff trusted to end it.

Let’s hope Allen keeps improving and gets even more minutes.

On the flip side, Levert is way too inconsistent to be considered anything close to a “3rd star”. If he can’t make shots consistently, he won’t be that valuable to this team.

I feel like our "3rd star" is on the shelf with a knee injury ngl. Spencer was going to figure it out and would have been a lethal weapon for us.

I think that LeVert needs to get back to driving into the mid range. He's settling for way too many threes. Put the ball on the floor and get into the paint.

Also, Allen needs to start. he's outplaying Jordan by a considerable margin and it's not even close.

I don’t know how the coaching staff could resist calling DJ out in film sessions.

The only skill he possesses is verticality for rebounds and lobs. He can’t move laterally, which really hampers his overall effectiveness.

I’d love to see us acquire more shooting (maybe via another 3&D wing like PJ Tucker) and another big center to take DJ’s spot.

And if Levert can’t shoot, he might have to go.

There are two problems with Levert: 1) he isn't good enough to begin with to warrant the hype, and 2) he still isn't a good fit next to our stars, hence why he has to come off the bench.

Glad we closed out 2020 with a win. We could of easily been 5-0 . Kyrie and KD put on a performance in the 4th. This is what stars do, finish and close games. We will be ok guys.

We all know LeVert is a notorious slow starter. He will turn it around.... book it

LeVert needs to stop jacking threes and focus on getting into the paint and making plays for others. Those are his strengths.

Either way, I think that this teams needs a trade. Spencer going down made that a priority at this point.

Caris hasn’t improved since he’s been in this league to be a 38-40% 3pt shooter and that’s scary. He’s getting into Raptor DeRozan territory

He doesn't need to be a 38%-40% shooter to be good. He needs to focus on his strengths and take clean looks from three. I feel like he's settling and chucking instead of driving hard into the paint for the easy pull ups.

Raps Derozan was a far better scorer who had a lethal midrange game and could get to the line.

My main takes from this game:

- DJ is so bad it's not even funny. He will be terrible vs most NBA teams. Let's be honest. It's painful watching him play.
- Allen is such a gem. Our best rim protector and rebounder BY FAR. This team would be in a huge trouble if he gets injured. Hope he stays healthy.
- Kyrie and KD will get cold sometimes but we know these two can turn it up in 4th and the opponent's defense on them doesn't matter when they get going!
- This team will need a trade for a good defensive wing.
- Claxton will be so needed because I have zero faith in DJ improving.
- Caris' decision making is terrible so far and that needs to be addressed quickly.

Some of these questions are so embarrassing.

“Did DeAndre break your back?”

He doesn’t even do that efficiently.

I love how KD has the laptop out to spit out some metrics during his post game presser. I love having high IQ stars that understand the analytical side of the game. He made sure to give Jarrett Allen his props.

It won't be long before DeAndre gets put in his place if you ask me. KD got into his ass tonight. I'm glad.
